Request for Proposal


Industry experts and senior executive HR practitioners are invited to submit proposals for presentation as we return to Las Vegas at Human Resource Executive's® Annual HR Technology® Conference & Exposition, which will be held  (in person) September 28 - October 1, 2021 at Mandalay Bay.


We invite you to submit proposals for consideration on any subject that will help today’s HR and IT professionals leverage technology to make their organizations more successful in the modern workplace. New technologies, innovative management practices, workforce issues (including remote), compliance, “best practice” case studies, HR transformation, employee engagement and experience, people analytics, talent management and acquisition, HR service delivery, total rewards, and discussions of new innovations and ones on the horizon are all topics of interest to the conference’s audience.


Proposals submitted by HR technology solution providers are strongly encouraged to include your CEO (or head of products at larger companies) and a VP-level or CHR0-titled customer representative and/or an industry thought leader as co-presenter. Proposals from HR technology solution providers without a client or industry thought leader as a co-presenter are NOT be likely to be considered. In addition, all corporate approvals to speak must be secured before submitting a proposal.


Individuals chosen to speak at the HR Tech Conference—which is the world’s largest event dedicated to HR technology—will have the opportunity to share their expertise with professionals committed to finding the most innovative solutions for their organizations. Solution providers chosen to present will be asked to partner with us in attracting additional practitioners to their sessions and to the entire event.
